I’ve been for a walk on a winter’s day

So I published a page today on the song “California Dreamin’,” written by John Phillips and Michelle Phillips in 1963 and recorded by The Mamas and the Papas in November 1965. Here’s a link to the page:

California Dreamin’

 

Selected recordings included in the page:

.

  • The Mamas and the Papas – live at the Monterey Pop Festival, Sunday, 18 June 1967
  • The Brass Ring, featuring Phil Bodner — issued in September 1966 on the single Dunhill D-4047, b/w “Samba De Orfeo (Black Orpheus)” — This seems to have been the same track featured on the Brass Ring albums Lara’s Theme (1966) and The Dis-Advantages of You (1967), each released on Dunhill Records.
  • Bud Shank — first track on the 1966 album California Dreamin’, (US) World Pacific WPS-21845, WS-21845, and also issued in 1966 on the single World Pacific 77824 — 45cat.com suggests that the single World Pacific 77824 (also WP-77824) was issued in May 1966. However, this may be incorrect because according to JazzDisco.org, the session that produced World Pacific 77824 occurred in August 1966.
